FAQ: Can SssI Methyltransferase be used for generating a positive control for methylation-specific PCR or bisulfate sequencing?
Yes, SssI can be used to generate a positive control for the procedure. We suggest 4 units per μg of DNA for 2 hours. Bisulfate is used to convert unmethylated C to T leaving methylated C as C in the substrate DNA. A sample of modified and unmodified substrate is used in a PCR reaction. The differences seen in sequencing PCR products indicate methylated verses unmethylated regions (1).
